For Ol' Times Sake lyrics

(words & music by tony joe white)
Before you go walk out on me
Take a look around tell me what you see
Here I stand like an open book
Is there something here you might have overlooked
cause it would be a shame if you should leave
And find that freedom aint what you thought it would be

The years we had were not all bad
In fact I know the good outweighed the bad
Now you say that youve grown tired
You want to be by yourself a while
It would be a shame if you should go
And find that freedom was a long time ago

I know that you cant stand the chains that bind you
They just keep on drivin us apart
You could go where I could never find you
But could you go far enough to get away from your heart

So one more time, for ol times sake
Come and lay your head upon my chest
Please dont throw this moment away
We can forget the bad and take the best
If you dont have nothing left to say
Let me hold you one more time for ol times sake

If you dont have nothing left to say
Let me hold you one more time for ol times sake
